puppy love

well, dear readers, i have to say young dave is growing on me. i have had to pull him up a couple of times for putting his head in my bowl, which causes a whole lot of fussing and screeching, but on the whole we are settling down into a nice routine.

his interest in gardening is causing some consternation but, as herself says on a regular basis, there is no point sweating the small stuff. or indeed the medium sized, evergreen stuff. as you will see, our carpet is pale. this was not the choice of the peeps who would always go for something the colour of mud that you clean with a mop. but the pale carpet is not really enhanced by lumps of soil and moss.

and there is a little matter of bladder weakness. i am the last one to point the paw at someone for this sort of thing. regular readers will recall the little problem i had with the prostate. so i will confine myself to supportive remarks when he does the right thing.

but on the whole he is a cool little bloke. he likes to give my old ears a lick and even tries to wrest the chocolate bone off me once in a while.

one other thing, for those loyal readers who have got this far, himself's kidney transplant is 15 october. so pray, or whatever you do, for him. and for the rest of us.

Perhaps Joker should have a celebratory meal, might I suggest steak and kidney pie?

Congrats on the soon to be new to himself kidney.

So very happy to hear about finally getting a date. The 15th is not that far away. I am holding you all in my heart. I also am understanding all too well the puppy bladder problem. It is making me batty. Like I keep saying, it is a very good thing they are so CUTE.

That photo is ADORABLE!

I'm a cat gal myself, but I'm falling in love with Joker and Dave!

I've been praying for you all a lot lately! I will keep on keeping on, too.

October 15th is very near my bday, so I will remember and pray on that day, too.

Love and hugs to you all!
